My Modern Met Featured on Flipboard!


If you have an iPad, you’ve probably already heard of Flipboard. Apple named it the 2010 iPad App of the Year and TIME listed it as one of the top 50 innovations in 2010. Flipboard lets you quickly flip through all of your favorite websites or your personal streams on Twitter or Facebook with style and panache. (In other words, their interface is beautiful.)

Recently, Flipboard reached out to us to see if I wouldn’t mind sharing my favorite feeds. Of course, I said “Yes!” In fact, I was deeply honored that they even asked. (Truth be told, I’ve been a fan of Flipboard since I first flipped my very first page.) It’s all part of a new blog series Flipboard has just started where it’s asking its users to tell them what they're reading and why.

“First up, Alice Yoo, the founder and editor-in-chief of the expertly curated My Modern Met, shares the myriad inspirations and sources that allow her to create a place where art enthusiasts and trendspotters can connect over creative ideas.”

You can read my picks over at Flipboard. Also, check out what Flipboard is all about here. Related: Flipboard iPad App: Your Social Magazine My Modern Met’s Featured on Flipboard! Flipboard Now Has Popular Stories
